You know who I'd love seeing get a spin with the Legends? Quentin. I don't know why, but that just seems a goldmine of comedy to me.

I've been thinking, and I reckon the best ending for S5 is one where Oliver dies. He fails, or he wins but has to sacrifice himself to do so. Considering all his angsting about what a bad person he is, it would fit the themes of the series (particularly series 5). His violent past has caught up to him, he doesn't find a way out, he dies. That's it. No resurrections, no bullshit. Arrow ends on a fittingly sombre note, rather than limping on until it gets cancelled.

I know. I'm not making a prediction (even if it hadn't been renewed, I wouldn't expect anything less than a happy ending). This is just something I think would be a good ending (or at least, the ending I would write).

Although, since you mention it, they totally could kill him off and have someone else take up the mantle in series 6.

The only person who took up the mantle was John Jr. And that's both a couple decades from now, and now deleted possible future.

Yes, Roy may be a great guy to replaced Oliver, sad to see him...not in Arrow anymore. Also, Black Siren has been cast as regular cast for the season 6.

Who knows. All I know is that Katie Cassidy is cast as regular cast once more. She's a great addition, you know. Maybe Black Siren's going to be anti-hero/anti-villain type.

Also, Black Lightning's trailer is very good and despite the assurance that Black Lightning will be stand-alone series and has no crossover with the rest of the Arrowverse, I'm not very assured.

So? Marvel Netflix has 4 different series, with 1 series uniting them, the Defenders. And then the Punishers is incoming as well.

Would have been such a bittersweet ending if only I was sold on Kara/Mon-el.
Also, Mon-el's pod's atmosphere would also be full of lead, so...

I got introduced to the Arrowverse via Arrow, which I began to first watch at the beginning of Season Three, but have gotten caught up with the series. Fell downhill in season 4, but I honestly think it has picked itself back up in season 5.

The Flash has been the Arrowverse show that has captivated me the most. Season 1 and 2 were both great, however season 3 has been a little lacking, really from the dragged out Savitar reveal and Iris-Barry storyline.

The Legends of Tomorrow has also been one of my favorite shows. Both season 1 and 2 were really great, and I fell that it has a great cast of characters for it to move on.

Haven't seen Supergirl yet. In comparison to the other shows, how good is it?

Overall, I rate Supergirl on much the same level as the others; its had ups and downs. Just looking at the latest series of each, I'd say it's better than the Flash and maybe Arrow, but not as good as Legends.

Good episode of Supergirl.

I'm glad that both Rhea and Mon-El are gone. Hopefully he doesn't come back and there's not another romance for Kara to drag down the next season.


Overall I think season 2 was a definite improvement over the first.

On the bright side, they aren't evil and thus irrelevant to be the enemies of Supergirl.

But seriously, it does wonder to how many evil Khryptonians apart from Zod and Astra's crews. And Brainiac, but he's no Kryptonian, so...
